Enterprise Agreements and Remuneration

The NCA Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021 (the Enterprise Agreement), provides a number of leave provisions aimed at providing a more flexible and family-friendly environment for employees. These include:

  • entitlement to 24 months part-time work on return to work from maternity leave, adoption leave or foster carer’s leave
  • provisions for returning to former duties or other duties the employee is qualified to undertake on return to work from maternity leave, adoption leave or foster carer’s leave
  • access to 16 weeks paid leave for maternity leave, adoption leave or foster carer’s leave
  • access to paid parental leave at half pay
  • specification of the types of leave that fall within the broad category of discretionary leave rather than deductions from personal leave
  • simplification of accrual rates for personal leave for ongoing and non-ongoing employees
  • three days’ paid compassionate leave on each occasion.

In addition to the Enterprise Agreement, the NCA uses other employment arrangements, such as section 24 Determinations (S24 Dets) and Individual Flexibility Agreements (IFAs) to provide for more flexible remuneration and employment conditions that meet the NCA’s operational needs and suit individual employees.

Table 17 provides a summary of NCA employees covered by Section 24 Determinations and the Enterprise Agreement. As at 30 June 2019, the Chief Executive’s remuneration was determined in accordance with the Remuneration Tribunal Determination – Remuneration and Allowances for Holders of Full-Time Public Office 2018.
